Please could you offer me some of your advice. My boyfriend and I (we are 27 yrs old) are planning a holiday in Vietnam for the last two weeks of August. We are aiming to arrive on the 17th and leave on the 31st. We are expecting to fly into Ho Chi Minh but if you would recommend Hanoi we could do that instead.
I have read so so so many forums/reviews/websites and to be honest I am getting too excited and trying to fit too much in. Having not been there before but travelled Thailand I am assuming the travel between towns/places could be long so we dont want to pack in too much.
Essentially we want it to be a chilled holiday. We really want to go to Hoi an for the lunar celebrations and I have read the Phu Quoc Island might be up our street. We understand that weather in August can be wet and are prepared for this however some advice on the 'best weather' areas for this time of year would be great.
What would be your itinary if you only had two weeks in August? A little site seeing and lots of relaxing? Whats the best way to travel to the places you suggest?
Any advice would be so welcome!
Thanks in advance.
